This quote was first shared when I was on the book launch team for Christie Purifoy’s book Placemaker. It came up again on my Facebook feed and I decided to share it again since I am working on cleaning the deck – my place of peace.
My mom’s advice during our conversation this morning was not to work too hard but take some down time and enjoy life. I told her not to worry, I will be enjoying life.
So take time this weekend and enjoy comfort, beauty and peace in a space you cultivated.
Welcome to the Bohemian Revolution edition of Weekend Wisdom! Today’s post is inspired by the movie “Moulin Rouge!” (2001) staring Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor.
McGregor portrays an English writer who moves to Paris in 1899 to join the Bohemian Revolution. He meets some revolutionaries and writes a show encompassing the revolutions’ ideals – Truth,Beauty,Freedom, and Love. Kidman is the star and courtesan at the Moulin Rouge where the show (“Spectacular, Spectacular”) will be performed.
The quote about love was used in the movie. The other quotes are ones I felt fit the theme.
There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.
Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.
The revelation of thought takes men out of servitude into freedom.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
“The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.”
